Three speakers spoke (in the order of reports):
My lecture was devoted to a brief overview of the cosmic achievements of mankind, as well as trying to answer the question of why we are seeing a stagnation in astronautics.If it is very short - profitable applied cosmonautics is connected with the Earth, conditional colonization of Mars is unprofitable, while enthusiasts who are ready to fly "at least with a carcass, even a stuffed animal" do not have the means. But it's not scary, space is still cool and wonderful. In textual form, these same thoughts are more fully expressed in the publication The Concept of Cosmic Realism.

zelenyikotEgorov gave a lecture on Cosmonautics: Expectations and Reality, where he vividly showed how dreamers of the first half of the 20th century were mistaken, and how people in space, instead of a conqueror and discoverer, turned out to be service personnel of scientific instruments.

Reconstruction of the flight of Gagarin in the Museum of Cosmonautics


We all know that on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin flew into space and became the first cosmonaut of mankind. But if you dig deeper, very few people know how the technique worked, how the flight went, what dangers the first cosmonaut was exposed to.I gathered several sources together - an Orbiter space simulator available for free, the Vostok ship addon made by Russian enthusiasts, the First Orbit film, shot when the ISS was as close as possible to the Gagarin flight track, the recordings used in the reconstruction of Yandex 2016 And thanks to the site of the mayor of Moscow, we have an excellent record of reconstruction.

Infrequent case when the queue rejoice. Space is interesting, and it is wonderful. Well, the museum is excellent - changing temporary exhibitions make a reasonable visit there about once a quarter, even for residents of Moscow.

On the street is the descent vehicle of the Soyuz. In my opinion, his vain painted in a uniform black color, burnt colored heat-resistant coating and more beautiful and realistic.

The most interesting artifact of the recently appeared in the permanent exhibition is the authentic descent vehicle "Luna-16". Without a special pump in the window there is a rather big object that went from Earth to the Moon and came back, an impressive sight.

Interesting things open when the top shell of the spacesuit is removed. It is necessary to tighten the structure with slings so that in the event of a ship depressurization, the spacesuit does not swell to be unable to work.

And this is the breastplate of the spacesuit for work in space. It is perfectly understandable why these suits are classified as hard.

And a sudden pleasant meeting — the leftmost picture was on the cover of a Soviet book with a fantastic painting “Race Against Time”, which I remember from childhood and are still looking at it with pleasure.
